      Just curious if this is possible…
      Maybe not totally, but to some degree…?

      What if I think of a specific topic and concentrate about it before I go to bed, will it help? 8)

      Hehe nice topic 🙂 I myself can arrange and manage what dream I am going to have tonite. I only need to concentrate before sleeping and then taddaa… 😉

      Sometimes, when I do not plan to dream anything, I even got a dream or to be precise a vision. For example I dreamt to meet a guy wearing black shirt in an office… few times later I met the same guy in the same situation and I said like, “Oh I think this happened to me before, but when?” Then I asked something to the guy, “What’s your favorite color? Wait, don’t answer now, think about it and answer when I ask you to answer.” I concentrate on him and then asked him to answer. In the same time we said, “Blue and black.” 😀 Then, I really want to meet this guy again. One night I manage to dream of him and in my dream I saw him in a room. I never been there and I never seen him in that situation. Now I am curious whether this will happen in the future or not. Just wait and see 😉

      Ooh I like experiments, and even I make experiment in my sleep 😆 😆 I am crazy 😛

      I think that’s great. I have a friend that knows who will enter the door before it does; even if she hasn’t met that person before, she can tell how the person will look 😯

      I think we’re evolving as a race 🙂 .

      Sometimes when I had an unforgottable experience on that day, I dream of it at night..! Dunno how it happens.. Maybe I kept thinking of it all day till I dream of it lol.

      But I ever had a dream and the next morning IT HAPPENS!!!
      But I wont’ tell you what :p

      Does this have a connections between the nerve and the brain..?

      Brain is all about nerve, my dear 😉

      Ah ya I remember a funny dream. This happened when I was 15 years old or in 9th grade. I had to study hard because the next day would be a final exam for Physics. I never got a good mark for this subject. Unfortunately, there was a great music show in the evening til overnight, means that I forgot my books. I was so worried but then I decided to sleep. Que sera sera, I said. Then… I got something in my dream, reading some exam questions for tomorrow, but I did not care at all because I thought it was just my anxious since I did not study as I should be. In the morning, when I opened my exam paper, whoaaa it was the page that I dreamt of last night!!! 😯 I felt so undefined… strange, confused, happy, awawawwawaaaaa 😉 😆 😆

      Wow… Dr.Stein, you seem to have paranormal abilities… The human brain is exploited only 10%, who know what you can do by using the other 90% as well?
      Now, about the dreams… During your sleep, you have 2 kinds of sleep: deep and paradoxal sleep. During the paradoxal sleep you dream. It is absolutely normal to dream about something that is on your mind during sleep. there is a psychology thing here(sorry if i remember things mised up): when you dream your subsoncious takes over. It contains all your hidden desires and stuff like that… Basically, everything that’s on your mind all the time. For example, i always dream about my girlfriend 😀

      I think that 10% statistic is a myth.

      Heh. Its a myth alright.

      It was used by “psychics”, hypnotists, etc. to exploit people.

      And how do they know that we only use the 10% of it..?

      Are dreams affected by physical condition..? I mean, when we are a lil bit unhealthy, does this affect our dreams?

      Really? I know that thing with 10% from a teacher(bot my teacher, another high-school teacher). I really though it was real… But since everyone seems to disagree, i bow down to the majority 😀
      I really need to learn not to trust teachers, they are nothing but trouble.. 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿

      If you’ve ever seen brain scans of neural activity you’ll see that sometimes the whole brain would light up in response to stimulus…such as cocaine.

      We did not evolve such energy costly organs simply to use 10% :D.

      Present company excluded of course, Dr.Stein. I was reffering to the teachers in my country.


      @mithril

      Actually, if i look over everything i know about the nervous system, it is logical that we use all our brain(just think at cortex projection areas-all 54 of them 😀 )I just never wondered….

      I can control my dreams. I can freeze my dream and re-arrange it as i see fit. Have you ever had those dreams where you want to scream but can’t, want to move but can’t?
      Netherless to say those dreams are a thing of the past for me but i noticed the persistance to catch me off guard.

      I can sometimes change a dream, but in doing so I feel it loses it’s authenticity and I lose whatever feeling I was getting from it. I usually wake up soon after trying to "edit" a dream too.

      An interesting little tidbit: Artemesia (wormwood, sagebrush, mugwort) species have a compound that is purported to aid in lucid dreaming. Some people smoke it, some people drink it (absynth), and some people merely put the leaves in their pillows.

      I watched the movie Aliens when I was a kiddo, and (though it’s still my all-time favourite movie) after that I had recurring nightmares of aliens and all kinds of other nasty things chasing me around and trying to kill me. Eventually I somehow learnt to "recognize" that it was such a dream again, and that I wasn’t in actual danger. And even nowadays, after recognizing that it’s just a dream, I can control the dream somewhat: I can rarely end dreaming or completely change the dream, but I can give myself some superhuman abilites which help me to beat the alien ass, or other times I just give myself the ability to fly, and then just flee the scene soaring like an eagle! This isn’t foolproof, though 🙁 Often when I give me guns, the bullets don’t work too well and I don’t get the monsters killed. Or sometimes when I fly, it becomes desperate gliding barely off the ground and trouble gaining altitude. Talk about soaring and eagles then… Boy, am I weird or what? 😛

      Of course, at some point, I realised that instead of gunning down the aliens or beating them with my fists, I could just dream about naked girls! Much more fun, even though an occasional action-packed, movie-like dream is great fun as well.

      Also, (this mainly happens close to the morning), I sometimes wake up in the middle of a dream, and if I just keep thinking about that dream, I fall back to sleep and continue where I was. The trick is, however, that when briefly awake I can again change something in that dream – like all the chicks suddenly wear a lot less clothes or something else fun.

      There are a few more examples of how I can control my dreams (sometimes & to a certain degree), but I think I already managed to make myself sound freaky enough 😉

      Apologies for the source but this made me chuckle.
